We have had so many good days in a row. I have been holding my breathe waiting for the other shoe to drop. And if this is all we are going to get, then yeah! They are trying to wean her from her narcotics. Truthfully, she has been on something, versed and fentanyl or methadone and atavan since her heart surgery March 3rd. She isn’t too keen on the withdrawn process, so we’ll go more slowly on that. We are down to 3 on Nitric! So far so good on that wean!
In OT today she was re-introduced to the binkie. She will allow her mouth to be touched now. She will taste the lollipop, but the binkie went into her mouth – as in on the inside! That was not so wonderful. And she couldn’t remember what to do with it inside her mouth. We’ll give her more time and opportunities. I took this picture right before she placed her hands over her mouth to block the binkie. Smart girl!
Jason and I had Trach CPR class at 5PM. Jason got here in time to see Bella sitting up! About our class – I hope I can remember all of that in an emergency. Was that 30 compressions or 20 breathes? They gave us a handout that we are going to tape to the inside door of the storage cabinet in her room. It’ll be right there in case I need it. Not that I ever panic!
